How I Use It
I would love to use this app after I have taught my History lesson, to integrate technology into my teaching. I will have the students partner up and explore the BBC Civilizations AR app and find artifacts that are from the time period we are studying. I will have the partner groups pair/share as they read and discuss the artifacts, and visit the museum links provided. When the partner groups are done, I will have them add their artifact information to a Google Doc that they can share with the class.
My Take
I like this app as a technology teaching tool. It brings art museums from around the world to the classroom for the students to explore. I like how the students can use their classroom iPad to move the artifacts around and interact with the app. It makes history come to life! My students will enjoy interacting with the app and learning about the artifacts in 3D, so much more interesting than just the textbook. This app will help them relate to the time period they are learning about.
